Xorg hogs the cpu time...


Dear friends

I am using Fedora 10.
Xorg program takes more cpu time around 40-50% which slows down other
programs.
How to rectify this problem?

Kindly help with this regard.

Thanks

What driver are you using for your graphics card ?

Do you have compiz effects enabled with software/indirect rendering ?


cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep autoconfigured

glxinfo | grep direct

Thanks for your reply!

The output the commands is:
(==) Matched ati for the autoconfigured driver.
direct rendering: yes

Hmm good question with direct rendering enabled theres no reason you should be having that sort of issue.. are you Positive Xorg is taking that much CPU time ?

Did you check that using top or htop ? or how did you make that determination..

F/F ???. Can be a real problem - especially if it has problems loading a page. I tend to have a few (8-10) tabs open, and I've found even with the latest nvidia (proprietary) driver on my core2 duo laptop, X will quite happily drive one core mad. No flash, no nuthin.
Kill F/F, and the problem goes away. It's a pig - I only use it because of the plugins.
